Wyatt Metal & Boiler Works — 1939

by Paula Bosse

I don’t know what this is exactly, but the Wyatt company made boilers, etc. for, among other industries, the oil and gas industry. This 1939 metal structure looks pretty futuristic. I hope it sat somewhere in West Texas, awaiting alien visitation.


I’m feeling a little The Day the Earth Stood Still vibe. …But less streamlined and more bulbous.



Sources & Notes

This issue of The Wyatt Way (September-October, 1939) was found on eBay, here. (“The Wyatt Way, A Magazine for the Builders of the Southwest,” published by Wyatt Metal & Boiler Works, Houston and Dallas, Texas.)
